You might be asking yourself. Why use Lightroom and Photoshop for editing iPhone images? Why would you want to use desktop software with a mobile device, when you have got thousands of applications on that mobile device? Well, the applications on the mobile device are fantastic for sharing. They're quick, convenient and they're actually pretty powerful but there are two reasons where I think Lightroom and Photoshop are definitely worth considering in your workflow. One is insurance. There's no telling when you might lose your phone. Your phone might get stolen.
It might get dropped, broken and all of your memories are gone with it. So, somewhere along the line you need to back up those images and doing that with Lightroom is a great way to go. There other is fidelity, and control, precision. The things that the desktop does really well. So whether it's taking that eight megapixel image, and turning it into a 12 megapixel image, or hand stitching a panorama so you get the best looking image. Sometimes the shot that you got needs to be great, needs to be high res, might want to be printed, put in a book, composited, and we can do a lot of things on a desktop that we can't do in a mobile environment.
So in this course, we're going to go really deep on what's possible using our desktop tools, Lightroom and Photoshop. So, let's get started.
Next, Bryan explores Lightroom and Photoshop techniques aimed at working around the iPhone camera's limitations and making mobile photos look their best: enhancing dynamic range, correcting lens distortion, reducing noise and enhancing sharpness, and much more. Plus, learn how to create HDR images and panoramas, and even lift still images from video.
